We've road tested quite a few Duckfeet, and we've found Fyn is good for those on their feet, and those who require orthotics. Why? Fyn's extra lace hole and deeper foot bed allows this shoe to really support your feet, giving you a feeling of security and comfort. Fyn is a unisex style that works well on both wide and narrow feet.
Fyn features premium full grain, double stitched and reinforced 100% leather uppers, insole, and leather midsole. Our non-toxic, vegetable tanned leather is manufactured according to strict environmental standards. It is drum dyed using high quality, non-toxic dyes and specially treated to be water and dirt repellant. Using traditional European Veldtschoen construction the upper is built up by hand over a flat last then the midsole is double stitched to our 100% natural crepe rubber outsole. Every pair of Duckfeet comes into contact with many experienced hands before they are placed in their box and fitted to your feet.
Duckfeet are stylish, reliable, and hard-wearing. Give them just a little bit of care to keep them in tip-top shape.
Caring for your leather
Leather is skin, and skin needs care. We recommend that you apply a thin layer of leather conditioner or shoe cream at regular intervals. Don’t use too much at one time. It’s better to use a little less a bit more often. Let the shoe cream sit a few minutes and polish afterwards with a soft cloth. Use a shoehorn when you put your shoes on – they are easier to get on and the back will not be destroyed. Untie or unzip the shoes or boots completely when you remove them – so they are easier to pull off. It’s better for the shoes than trampling on them! If you care for your shoes regularly, you will enjoy them longer. Your shoes will be grateful for it.
If your shoes get wet
Store your shoes in a dry and airy place. If your shoes become wet, fill them with crumpled newspaper and let them air-dry. When they are completely dried, you can again apply leather conditioner or shoe cream. Leather shoes should not be dried on a radiator – the leather becomes dried out and porous. If the leather gets water stains, take a cloth and make the whole shoe slightly damp. Treat the leather afterwards as described above. It is best to change your shoes daily. Give your Duckfeet a day’s rest, so they can release the foot’s moisture and dry thoroughly.
If your shoe get dirty
If the shoes get dirty, clean them with a damp cloth. Let the shoes dry thoroughly and treat the leather again with shoe cream or leather conditioner. Be attentive to edges and seams, which should also be treated to maintain the leather and protect your shoes against water.
Caring for crepe rubber
Crepe rubber soles can become hard at low temperatures, but this can be avoided by storing the shoes out of direct sunlight at a temperature between 20-25C. If the soles become hard, you can place the shoes on a warm radiator, until the crepe rubber is soft again. Avoid contact with solvents. The rubber cannot tolerate it and can dissolve.
Most of our styles can be resoled, you can purchase a resole from us when required.
Not my first Duckfeet but my first pair of Fyn. Had been wanting a pair of black shoes and chose Fyn for the detail across the toe. Although I chose Fyn for aesthetic reasons I was super happy with the comfort. Previously had found Duckfeet black leather to need a bit of wearing in but Fyn was a perfect fit out of the box. I wear Jylland all year but I think Fyn is a bit of a heavier looking shoe and will probably only wear in cooler months. But definitely know I'll get a lot of wear out of them as they are so comfortable.
Never even needed a break in period. I have always had to buy wide shoes and these ones just fit properly the way they come.
These are stunning shoes, I am so glad to have finally found quality, artistry and wonder all in one product. I love the individuality of the look and the personality! Thank you Duckfeet!!!
So, I’m nervous about online clothes shopping at the best of times - let alone for shoes. How to be sure that they’ll fit?
I needn’t have worried. My Duckfeet arrived in record time, sustainably packaged, with a reassuring note from Simon.
Best of all, they fit like a glove (for my feet). Beautifully made and just as funky as in the pictures … I don’t want to take them off.
It’s my first time in Duckfeet and it won’t be my last.
Very narrow opening could not get my foot into the shoes, not suited to wide feet so I have returned them
